is about religion. big foot, yeti, it's often a punch line. people are incredibly skeptical. >> you get punched if you say a joke about stuff around me. >> reporter: like we said, that are really into bigfoot. never mind the fact that the only thing anyone knows for sure about the legendary beast is that it has been wildly successful at filling tabloids, being the subject of terrible b movies. and generally serving as an all-around punch line. >> about what height did you see these guys? >> they were up higher than your hand. >> that's a big boy. >> reporter: matt moneymaker and his team are real life bigfoot hunters. with every bit of cutting edge technology, night vision gear and sensors, they can get their hands on, the group travels the world investigating bigfoot sightings. why are people fascinated by bigfoot. >> well, first, it's more than one. it's not bigfoot, it's bigfoots. there's a misconception that we're looking for one thing. >> reporter: their adventures make up two and soon to be three seasons of the animal planet show, "finding bigfoot." why is there no good fee toe of
that. [laughter] but it's, it just works. it's a form of religion. i really believe that. in which you don't have to, you don't have any morality, you just have places to go to worship. [laughter] >> by the way, we're going to -- i'm going to ask one more question, and then we're going to open it up to all of you who i'm sure have lots of questions for tom. finally, tom, after "bonfire of the vanities" you got into a few tiffs with other authors about what real writing is. you guys were particularly nastiest with mailer, updike and irving, referring to that -- if i remember correctly -- as the three stooges. were you just trying to start a fight just to be provocative? there seemed to be a choosing up of sides, and many along the 43rd street corridor at the time new york magazine often cited the scene with mailer and company. do you think this fight has had a negative impact on reviewers of your book? in other words, do you think they use each new book as a chance to get even? >> in a word, yes. [laughter] i couldn't resist. everyone always said never answer a review, it's crazy, it sh
abortion, you have to right to face for abortion rights, go for it. religion, the more women are sub gated. women are raised as institutionalized sexism. no one think to say point out that things are sexist. we grow used to it. women are indoctrinated into this feeling that they are second place citizens and men who want to get inside of those bodies get to dictate what happens to those bodies if they do. >> caller: i wouldn't dare get into a conversation about religion. it's up to them and i don't want to interfere with that. and i believe in everybody's right to do that, no matter how fundamentalist. >> amen. >> caller: but the trouble is that there are plenty of women and men who believe that women should not have these rights who aren't particularly religious. >> exactly. that's true. >> caller: who aren't particularly, you know, who don't go to church every sunday and don't, you know, belong to an evangelical congress degree allegation. >> stephanie: i think it also didn't, you know, resonate with people, they are saying small government, the best bumper sticker, government small enou
don't have a religion. in fact our brand name would extend. the reason i get asked that question from time to time is because people know that the amazon brand name would probably work well, the physical world environment. so there are some, we have some of the assets in place that we would need to do that. >> would it have any advantage other than being a profit centre? which is a pretty good advantage. >> but that's the kind of question that we ask ourselves when we're looking for something that would make it not a me too offering. we want it to be differentiated. we want-- you know, if you-- if somebody is already-- if 100 companies-- companies are doing something and you're the 101s you're not really bringing any value to society. and so and typically by the way the business results aren't very good for something like that either. and so what we want to do is we want to do something that is uniquely amazon and if we can find that requested, and we haven't found it yet but if we can find that we would love to open physical stores. >> what have you worried about that might be a chan
respect to religion because i know that you're a very religious person and do you feel that god has a plan for you. >> yes. the gentleman who ran against me was told by god -- and people would say well, you know, you're theologically trained, you can probably slice him to pieces. my response was any time anybody says they were told by god to do something, i leave it alone. you know. i would say that sometimes the voice of god we hear is our own voice in disguise. and so i'm -- but at the same time i'm careful about saying well, why would god talk to you? you only have a bachelor's degree or you only -- and it was in geography. but i think we leave that alone. now i don't think that we have to manufacture a god discussion and i became really angry with many democrats saying we've got to start talking about god. my response is god will not be pimped. are we going to talk about him so we can impress some people who believe that -- say the word "god." called the name "god." i can't do that. i think in the course of who we are
